Senior Visual Designer - Content at Policygenius
Everyone at Policygenius, from our newest customer success associate hire to our CEO, believes that the design process is our primary tool for empathy, problem-solving, and innovation. In fact, our product and design teams focus nearly exclusively on our Discovery efforts; learning more about our customers, and designing experiments to validate our assumptions. To be successful, we’ve built a balanced team that aims to deeply understand how our real, human customers think about their financial security.
Our entire design team focuses on product thinking and empathy, but it’s the Senior Visual Designer who’s responsible for presenting our heavily trafficked content in pleasing and easy-to-digest ways. They focus on iterative experiments to improve conversion to our product experiences, increase trust in our expertise, and elevate the bar for the Policygenius visual language. Partnering with product managers and engineers in our cross-functional content team, the Senior Visual Designer ships quick iterations on our guides and tools to move us up the search rankings and expose more customers to our award-winning content. They’re optimization-minded, love a good A/B test, and enjoy working at both macro and micro scales with an ability to identify how to drive the most impact through their work.
Reporting to our VP, Growth Design, the Senior Visual Designer, a member of our product design team, will oversee design for our industry-leading content initiatives–direct drivers to the success of our business and build a platform customers trust. They will also partner with our brand marketing team to best reflect our brand in digital product experiences and continually work to improve the quality of our visual language across all digital touchpoints and actively contribute to our product design system, Mortar.
